Belgrade philharmonic New Year concert
Belgrade Philharmonic New Year Concert is a tradition that we will never give up, even when faced with terrible pandemic.
Music exists to be played, regardless of the immense shock and loss that the Belgrade Philharmonic suffered when Ivan Tasovac passed away this year, another great figure and a person who managed to transform this important cultural institution and bring classical music closer to young people and all the coming generations. In that spirit, just like all the great philharmonic orchestras around the world, the Belgrade Philharmonic will hold the traditional New Year's concert, regardless of all the troubles caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The New Year's concert of the Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra is always the merriest performance and is scheduled for December 24 and 25 at 8 pm, at a well-known venue, in the Great Hall of Kolarac, one of the most acoustic spaces in Belgrade, where even the most discerning sound enthusiasts will be thrilled.
The conductor will be Daniel Raiskin, a permanent guest conductor and one of the favorites of the Belgrade audience, while the main soloist is Kari Kirku on clarinet, as one of the pioneers of contemporary music performance, also known for magnificent interpretations of contemporary clarinet pieces. On this very occasion in Belgrade, he will be performing his famous Bizzare Bazaar project, an authentic folk music arrangement for solo clarinet and chamber orchestra ranging all from Portuguese fado to Hungarian dances.
Founded in 1923, the Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra is today considered the best orchestra in the region and an ensemble that is seen as a refreshment on the international concert scene, which has been recognizing and admiring it for decades. The Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra is primarily a cultural institution that initiates, implements and promotes social-oriented initiatives, tolerance, as well as regional and international cooperation.
This is why such original and unique concept of New Year's concerts, promoting ethnic and religious diversity through music, attracted a lot of attention from the local and foreign audience, and has been recognized and supported by the European Union.
